After Zane and Kaine broke up Kaine would go on a break from dating. Today we’re gonna talk about a special someone he would meet eventually.
A stack of files would be flung onto Kaine’s desk telling him he needed to catch someone causing issues with living moving plants. “Huh,what the hell?” He thought to himself. “This guy just needs to be captured and brought to justice preferably alive” said the client, who is just a giant insect like alien who’s smoking some kind of joint.
“Yessir” says Kaine. “3000 bucks for a guy pranking people with plants? Works for me” he thinks to himself. “I’m your man” says Kaine
“Very well. Here’s your file” says the client
“This is gonna be easy! I’ll have him to you in 3 days” he takes the files to his ship and loads the files into his ship.
Weight: 110 pounds
“Redacted…? What the fuck” Kaine thinks to himself. He continues to read through the files and finds a location.
“Bingo I’ve got you now Icarus” he says.
He gets into his crummy old ship that probably still has Zane’s stuff somewhere in there and starts to take off towards the coordinates given.
“Huh… he’s Kinda cute… Ah shit no thoughts like that I gotta arrest this guy. But those wings… he’s definitely a good looking guy” he continues to argue with himself settling the fact he probably just misses Zane and is feeling desperate for another boyfriend.
“But this guy’s a criminal I catch those for a job I can’t think one is attractive…” he thinks to himself. He flies towards a large city planet named Arkus Prime where Icarus had been seen last to talk to his favorite bartender; Jarrod a large reptilian alien with a bad attitude and enough battle scars to last him a lifetime. He’s Kaine’s main source of info and cheap cocktails.
He gains landing clearance and parks at the bar and exits his ship and walks inside taking a seat at the bar fully armed. “Oi! Jamka you old bastard! How’s it going?” He yells at the old reptile. “What in the fresh hell brings you here again boy?” The alien snaps back. “Looking for info and to see an old friend.” Says Kaine.
“Welcome home kiddo. Whatcha need?” Jarrod says with a smile.
Kaine pulls out his file and shows him. “I’m looking for this Faeryx named Icarus” he tells him what he did and where he was last here.
“A Faeryx huh? Those hippies don’t leave their planet too much. Buncha tree huggers with their weird magic but damn it if their women aren’t gorgeous. Hell the whole race but I only go for ladies obviously. But this guy looks like a great match for scum like you right Kaine? Gahahaha”
Kaine blushes and sputters out his response “I-I uh n-nah I’m done with other men… Or relationships after that dick Zane dumped my ass.”
“Anyone with eyes could see you two didn’t work and are much better off as business partners but to answer yer question. The chaos he caused was nearby and I’m sure he’s around still. Honestly seems more like a prankster as opposed to a criminal.”
“I see… can I get the usual?” He asks.
“Why of course.” The grizzled reptilian makes Kaine a drink with some blood red fruits and lots of red and orange liquids creating a drink that looks like molten blood.
“Thank you my friend” he says as he takes a sip and bites into an orange slice.
“on the house. I miss seeing ya boy and I’m glad you’re back to visit”
“All good. Glad to be home” he says. He finishes up the drink and says “thanks for the info Jamka. I’ll take out the trash” he says with a wink.
“I’ll save a table for two then heh”
“You know what I meant!” Kaine snaps as he leaves. He makes his way to the city park which mysteriously sprung a forest overnight. “He’s got to be here” Kaine thinks to himself as he arms himself with cuffs and a weapon taking a blaster with a dagger at the end.
As he approaches he begins to hear panflute music.
“Hmm… that is him without a doubt. Such a pretty song though.” As the Skulldog goes deeper into the forest the Faeryx is there sitting on a giant purple mushroom playing his pan flute.
“Here to arrest me I assume?” He asks. His voice is very aloof and he’s got an incredibly youthful attitude his voice sounding young and joyful.
“Uh… indeed. Please Come easy.You’ve done a minor crime it’s not gonna be more than a year.” Kaine says shakily knowing that the Faeryx didn’t mean any harm. “That’s a nice song by the way.” He says not noticing the blush growing on his face.
“Why thank you teehee. It’s a song of peace and celebration” Icarus says as he flutters off of the mushroom and walks over to Kaine putting the cuffs on himself.
“W-wait why cuff yourself…?” Kaine asks as his brain does a mini short circuit.
“You said to come easy handsome. Here have a flower for making the trip to take me in and being so polite.” The Faeryx says as he creates a pink flower out of thin air and gives it to Kaine.
“Oh uh… thanks. Come on let’s go scum…. Sorry habit you seem really nice actually” he says as he escorts the Faeryx to his ship and cuffs him to the passenger seat.
As this happens the forest vanishes.
“Front seat? Am I special?”
“Yes you are. I actually… Want to talk to you on the way” Kaine says.
Kaine decides to take the long way but not by choice. Almost as if fate itself happened the hyperdrive broke down making a few hour trip into a 3 day one. The two would begin to chat with Kaine even letting Icarus free in the ship. They’d talk about their lives and Kaine would eventually drop his capture off and then pay for his release with the promise to stay in touch.
Icarus happily obliged and the two Would move in together shortly.
2 years later Kaine and Icarus are now a couple. One night however something would go wrong.
Icarus left without warning and wouldn’t be seen for 2 more years. In those years Kaine and Zane would reconnect and try again and break up soon after. They’d go to Icarus’s homeworld and find him. Icarus saving Kaine from a Razorweed.
“Hello old friend! Quite a sticky situation you’ve gotten yourself into huh?” Says a youthful,snarky, playful but also unearthly soothing voice. A cloud of glitter Rains down as a white fox with ornate blue and purple butterfly wings floats down. Most of his fur is creamy white and he has ornate patterns on his sides and legs. Gleaming green eyes with two small antennae between his fluffy ears. His neck fluff is almost as fluffy as a dandelion and it almost forms a flower shape and a red rose is formed on his belly and chest from the red pattern. He’s got small claws on his paws that are green. His flowing fluffy tail swishing in the air and it curves to a flower shape at the end. It’s Icarus.
They’d become a couple and get married soon after. The rest is history. The two now live in a Hollowed out tree with their adopted sons Kaden the puppy and Tyberius the Thylacine.
Kaine and Icarus the galaxies most unusual couple. Kaine the Gray, fiery quick to anger and super buff and rowdy Skulldog. With his husband the smaller delicate Faeryx who’s white and floral. With his multiple personalities, pension for pranks and control over plants. The two are like yin and yang. Opposites in many ways but completing something they both lacked. But the two still spread chaos but their sons don’t mind.
What other adventures could these two go on?
